This 3 Part Tutorial Series will Introduce you to Python and will show you how to use Python to communicate with Cinema 4D and create a Twitter Client inside of Cinema 4D.
Part 1: Python Fundamentals
In this Tutorial we will learn the absolute basics of Python. It’s meant to be accessible to people with no programming experience. We start by setting up the Interface, and create a couple of simple Scripts.
Part 2: Talking to Cinema 4D
In this Tutorial we will learn how to use Python to communicate with Cinema 4D. To do that, I introduce the Python concept of modules. Among other things, this lets you create Cinema 4D Objects and set their attributes. I also cover Python Objects, which are different from Cinema 4D Objects.
Part 3: Talking to Twitter
In this Tutorial we will start to see the new possibilities that Python introduces to Cinema 4D. We use a third party Module to create a Twitter Client inside of Cinema 4D. We’ll also cover some new Python concepts like Lists and For Loops.
